Introducing “I Am NTSB”

By Chairman Robert L. Sumwalt 

It gives me great pleasure to introduce a new video series, “I Am NTSB.”

As a Board Member and now as Chairman of the NTSB, I’m often called on to describe our transportation safety mission or our investigative process. It’s a never-ending source of inspiration to think that, just maybe, what we do on a given workday will save lives in the future.

But other people ask me a much simpler question. They ask me what it’s like to work at the NTSB.

For me, it’s a dream job. As an airline pilot, and even before, I got to know what the agency did, and I always wanted to be a part of it. But what I knew little about were the people at this agency. It’s my privilege to lead a top-notch staff with diverse backgrounds, skills, and viewpoints. I’m constantly astounded by their many thoughtful ways of looking at things.

That’s why we created this series of video profiles of our employees. Through these video vignettes, viewers will learn a little more about our people and hear how our employees view the NTSB. If you’re one of those people who wonders what it’s like to work here, this video series is for you.

And who knows? Working at the NTSB might be for you, too!

We’ll lead off with Jane Foster, an electronics engineer in our Office of Research and Engineering.
